The Joan Mitchell Foundation commissioned an 8,000 square foot studio building for its artist residency program in New Orleans soon after Hurricane Katrina. The building is situated on the interior of the block and is the only new construction within a larger campus of historic structures owned by the foundation. The building’s L-shape frames a large communal green space, and the profile of the roof monitors for the studio volumes echo the scale, geometry, material and rhythm of neighboring houses.

Loisos and Ubbelohde helped tune the daylighting within the studio spaces. Apertures in the walls and roof of each studio were studied to deliver quality daylight and views in this hot humid climate.
